In my opinion the tragedy here is not that people abuse Tor, because
everything will be abused.  It's that providers will allow themselves to be
bullied, and then bully others, when behavior falls into the bucket of
"legal, but annoying".  If they SWIPed the IP, this could be averted
easily, and remove Linode from having to deal with the complaints at all,
but they won't do that either.
